    Here is a picture of the sewing table I just ordered. It is actually a school computer desk with a dropped section for the keyboard, but it works perfectly for my machine.

    I got it from epicofficefurniture.com but I called to place my order because the drop-out can be left, center or right and the online order did not allow me to specify the right hand position.

    It comes in several colors and in 30" by 48", 30" by 60" and 30" by 72". It does require some assembly and is very heavy!
    It is shipped by a truck due to the weight.

    It looks very nice. Is that part behind it part of the table (where the threads and fabrics are sitting)?

    Can you use an acrylic form around the sewing machine to make the sewing surface flat?

    dunster, that is a dresser turned perpendicular to the wall behind the table - just to give me more room.

    The manufacturer is Correll and it was shipped direct from the factory in Arkansas. Model # BL3060 (or 3048 or 3072 depending on the size).

    Very nice. Is the drop down adjustable, or stationary?

    I should have shown the machine with the acrylic insert in place. It fits like it was made for it!

    The drop shelf is stationary - 3 1/2 inches from top of shelf to table top.

    I have one very similar to yours, also a computer desk. The tray on mine is adjustable so I can set it to the height of my sewing arm. The not so good thing about mine is that the cut out is in the left position. When I need extra room on the left side I just move two rolling drawer sets in beside the table. It works for me. I don't have an acrylic table for my machine but the arm of it butts right up against the side of the desk so I sill have a same height work area. I'm going to check out the info you gave and see if it would be affordable to change out my table. I got mine at Walmart years ago for around $100.

    I found it on the company website: http://epicofficefurniture.com/produ...ducts_id=37898

    Seems like a good price (it's on sale this month for $225) for a very stable table. A lot of the ones I've seem look so flimsy.

    This could be exactly what I'm looking for! Now that you have it, are you happy with where your machine sits? Do you have enough room on the right? Thanks so much! And I love your runner, too.

    That looks awesome! Looks like a perfect marriage between machine and table.
